Liz holds a Bachelor’s degree from The University of Dallas, Irving, Texas and a Master’s degree in Adult Education (with an emphasis on human resource development and leadership) from The University of Alaska, Anchorage, Alaska. Liz’s undergraduate thesis work was a phenomenological exploration of the themes around the evolving sense of self in parenting a child experiencing intellectual disability issues. Her graduate capstone work examined the foundations of exceptional programming for people who experience intellectual disability issues and the paraprofessional staff delivering said programming.
